Notably, this was accomplished before the negative feedback amplifier was invented in 1927.
It would be interesting if the survey was presented in other developed nations.
Pesticide application is "reduced" because the GMO corn is pumping out it's own pesticide. Not directly dangerous to humans but the systemic threat it represents to beneficial insects is real.
The purpose of a free press is to promote a knowledgeable society. If the agenda is to stomp out the stupidity of the masses and their dangerous influence over lawmakers then yes, I welcome these agenda-toting muckrakers of truth with open arms.
The original variant of the optical IBM/Lenovo scrollpoints are really nice and have a separate third button above the XY scroll saddle. Bonus points for having a two axis scroller that is hard to slip off when pressing left or right and being symmetric for ambidextrous use. The later models fail by putting the third button on the side.
Reminds me of how VGA could readily handle higher resolutions than modern displays, component video even better, but everything had to be digital so they could sneak in their DRM.
could be opening themselves up to legal action.
Does anyone have a contract with WhatsApp to provide guaranteed services? No. They provide a free service and have the right to do anything they want with it.
Locking out apps that don't meet their requirements is a perfectly reasonable thing to do. Blocking users outright is heavy-handed but none of them paid a dime to use the software and have no basis for a lawsuit.
Basic OpSec would insist that you keep the incriminating stuff locked in a separate container that you only open when needed and with a low inactivity timeout to demount it when you forget.

I'm waiting for them to fix the plague of transcendental numbers and redefine pi to be the proper, all-American value of 3.2. If we're lucky they might fix that pesky e too.
There's no such thing as "police powers" beyond the power to issue citations for civil violations which is a delegated authority from the executive. Otherwise, every citizen has equal right to uphold the law to enforce misdemeanors and felonies including pressing charges and making arrests.
The problem with an internal billing system is that a "cost center" department will have it's billing rate capped as an incentive to reduce costs. That is the easiest lever the MBAs have to make themselves look good. When the belt tightening begins the cap will be set below the level of sustainability. Then the department sheds workers and the brilliant MBAs get their bonus.
The deletion ninjas on Wikipedia won't even let nim have it's own article. So D has a leg up on at least one "next-gen" language.
The BASIC he was talking about was the line numbered, unstructured distant ancestor of VB. VB.NET is mostly just a different flavor of C#. The quote doesn't apply any more.
Except of course that searching files has been completely fucked up since Vista.
